How to Copy From a Flash Drive to Linux

Author : weterm Date : 1/14/2014 9:06:01 PM

Major distributions of Linux make it easy to plug in a flash drive by auto-mounting and opening a folder, showing the contents of the flash drive. Other distributions of Linux are not as automated for security reasons and require some extra steps. These extra steps are quick to accomplish and set you up to easily transfer files.


Plug the flash drive into the computer.

Ensure the hardware was detected by going to "System Tools," "Hardware," then "Browser" and enter the root password. Look under "Hard Drives" and it should be listed under "/dev/sda."

3.Open a terminal and type "cd /mnt" to change to the appropriate directory.

Become root by typing "su" and then typing in the root password.

Make a new directory called "usbflash" by keying in "mkdir usbflash."

Mount the flash drive with the command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash" (substitute the actual device location in place of "/dev/sda1").

Copy files by dragging and dropping between folders on the flash drive to folders on the Linux computer.

Unmount the flash drive before removing it from the computer by keying in "umount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash."
